ANS is NetApp ’s Services Partner of the Year


After winning NetApp UK FlexPod Partner of the Year just last month, ANS has earned Services Partner of the Year at the NetApp EMEA awards in Europe.

Entrants were required to demonstrate continual improvement in delivery of services, consistent adoption of NetApp ‘best practices’, commitment to the development of partner engineers, NetApp training compliance, an on-going reduction in escalated cases, and commitment to service improvement initiatives and expanding service relationships.

ANS’ submission demonstrated the high level capability of both the Managed Services and Professional Services Teams and their commitment to fulfilling the requirements of partner programs and the training of the teams to the highest level, innovative integration of NetApp products and solutions into our managed service offerings, a number of advanced support features including change management and enhanced monitoring capability, and the successful delivery of multiple complex projects to a consistent high standard throughout the year.

ANS’ qualifications and expertise were demonstrated through the inclusion of case studies and customer references from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Addleshaw Goddard, Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, Daniel Thwaites, University of Cumbria and WDS, a Xerox Company.

Paul Shannon, Managing Director (Managed Services) at ANS, said: “We have a culture of success at ANS, and winning a prestigious partner award that is based on collective hard work and commitment really sets the tone for the type of values we promote. It’s a boost for our team to know that their work really is some of the best in the industry and it also is a great way for us to attract top level talent who can help our team develop even further. This in turn leads to more customer opportunities and a way for us to keep investing in the NetApp relationship.”

Steven Bomberg, Professional Services Director at ANS, said: “It’s great to win this award because it recognises the fantastic work that our Managed Services and Professional Services Teams deliver on a daily basis and the people in these teams delivering this service define what we are and differentiate us against the competition.”
